The City of Tacoma seeks Arts Projects funding applications now through Nov. 29, 2010 from eligible organizations producing community-based arts programming in Tacoma within the 2011 calendar year. Applicants are encouraged to attend a free workshop which explains and addresses questions about the process on Nov. 2, from noon — 1:30 p.m., at the Tacoma Municipal Building, 747 Market St., Room 1444.
Arts Projects funding ranges from $1,000 to $5,000 and has, in the past, supported arts components of festivals, dance and musical performances, arts workshops, exhibit programs, performing arts series and literary events.
Eligibility extends to private non-profit agencies with a 501(c) designation, organized groups of community volunteers (such as a business district or neighborhood council with an advisory body, business license and organizational bank account), and for-profit businesses with an arts mission proposing a unique project that is not for profit and designed specifically for public benefit.
Applicants are required to have offices within Tacoma or conduct a majority of their activities within Tacoma city limits.
Changes this year include the eligibility of arts projects, programs or special events sponsored by schools, school-based auxiliary organizations and taxing authorities.
